|President Mahama shakes hand with Acting Kwahu Chief at Kwahu Kotoso Water Project|
He claimed he puts premium on the development of the Kwahu area, saying his bid to endorse President Mahama for another term was a good step to attract infrastructure boost to the enclave.
A group calling itself the Concerned Okwahu Development Youth Association (CODYA) is calling on the Acting Paramount Chief of Kwahu Traditional Area, Nana Asiedu Agyeman III to publicly retract his endorsement of President John Mahama for another term in office.
The Chief last week endorsed the President during his visit to the area as part of his “Accounting to the people tour” claiming the President has brought a lot of development to the Kwahu area.
But the Acting Chief in an interaction with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM on Monday said, he’s done no wrong supporting Mahama for a second term bid, if that promises to boost development in his area.
“Those who are criticizing me indeed have some political agenda but I won’t be perturbed with such attacks because everybody knows the development gains we’ve had under this government. As a matter of fact, development projects are normally truncated when there is a new government in place, however, in order not to cut the pace of the projects being secured for the people of Kwahu, I prefer the President stays in power for another term to continue such works for us in Kwahu.
“The government has unbeatable records in terms of the development of Kwahu. If the President is willing to continue his good works for Okwahuman, why won’t I support him so he could accomplish the development plans he has for us.
“Abetifi Hospital which is to be completed by the end of the year, Kotoso water project- which is part of the Kwahu, Konongo, Kumawu water projects through a loan contracted by government, the three Community SHS facilities, Atibie-Nkawkaw road under construction among others, are all part of the development strides of the current government which I personally will support the President for.”
